Adesense Payment Guide

In many webmasters forum, I noticed that people often get confused with Adsense’s payment schedule. So i decided to make it a little easier to understand.Theres a few things you have to clear before you be eligible to receive payment.
1. Remove Holdings : There are two things you have to do. First, Filling out your tax information. For that Login in your Adsense Account, then go to My Account > Tax Information. If you are from US, You need to enter your TAX Information and SSN. If you are not from US, check the second option (even if you are hosting your sites in a US server). Second, you have to confirm your phone number. Enter your phone number there, and check on Ring Now. An autometic system will ring your phone and you will be given a number which you have to enter in your account to remove phone verification holding.
2. Confirming Your Postal Address : When you will reach your first $10, A PIN will be depatched to your address you have provided when registering. It will come in a white envelope with the Google Logo on it. It may take 2-4 weeks to get delivered. You have to enter the PIN in your account to verify your postal address. Once these two (Point 1 and Point 2) holdings are removed, you are now eligible to receive payment when you reach your minimum payout limit.
3. Reach minimum Payout : The Payout limit is $100, which means, you have to reach $100 before google sends you a payment. This limit is applicable for all the future payments, that means, you have to reach $100 everytime to receive payment.

Payment Schedule : Adsense Pays monthly (Only if you are eligible for payment). They maintain a schedule to send payment to publishers. It takes a month for them to release the previous months payment. For Example, Your payment for the month of March will be released within April 26 to April 30. Provided you have removed all the holdings before April 15.If your monthly earnings are below $100 per month, you have wait untill you reach $100. For example, your earnings for January, February, March and April are $20, $30, $40 and $50 respectively, you have to wait untill May 26 before you see a PIP (Payment In Progress) in your Payment History Page (My Account > Payment History). In this case, your payment will be of $140. It may take 5 to 45 Business Days to receive the payment depending on the method you choose to receive payment.

Payment Methods: Adsense Pays through four Payment Gateways.

1. Western Union : It takes 5 to 10 Business days. Its available only in few countries.
2. Standard Delivery : Its takes 2 to 5 weeks to receive the check. Available to all the countries.
3. Express Delivery : It takes 1 to 2 weeks to receive the check. Available to all the countries. The charge for it is $25 and the amount will be deducted from your earnings. Status is trackable.
4. EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer) : It takes 5 to 7 business days. Available only in few countries. You can track its status.
